God Remembers The Humble

Key Verse

“Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble.” Psalm 10:12

Text — Psalm 10:12-15


Joseph was a very humble and God-fearing boy. His father loved him because he was hardworking, truthful and obedient. He made a coat of many colours for him. God too loved him and gave him dreams of how great he would be in future, but his brothers hated him. They planned to kill him. They felt they could stop his dreams from coming to pass. How could they, being his elders, bow before him, they hated such idea. Then they sold him, as a slave, to a strange land. His father cried and thought he was dead. They all forgot about him.

He went through shame and prison. Yet wherever he went, people loved him for his humility, hard work and godly lifestyle. At some point, Joseph thought God had forgotten him and his dreams but God cannot forget the humble. God remembered him one day and took the humble boy from prison to the throne. The humble is that child who is like Jesus, who emptied Himself of all His glory and honour and came to the earth to serve as a servant. Truly, the Lord, our God cannot forget the humble. Fear God, be lowly in your heart, reject pride and God will not forget you. He will promote you in due time.
